37 1115 St. Louis Cardinals Danny Jimenez LHP Ill.
Lefthander Danny Jimenez has emerged as the second-best high school pitching prospect in Illinois. The 6-foot-4, 205-pounder threw 88-89 mph as a sophomore before dipping to 83-85 as a junior. He was back up to the high 80s this spring thanks to improved conditioning, which can be partially attributed to playing for the St. Charles North basketball team. Jimenez shows good command of four pitches, though none of his secondary offerings is particularly impressive. He's considered signable and will play at Logan (Ill.) CC if he doesn't turn pro.
